News, news, and more news from the American Headache Society conference!

Every Migraineur's dear friend Teri Robert at MyMigraineConnection spent last week in Chicago at the 49th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society. Teri attends this conference every year and always returns home with fodder for many articles in which she shares with us what she learned -- written in a way we can actually understand! To me, her articles are always more valuable than most "news" articles written on Migraine because she goes deeper and into more detail than most people who write on Migraine and Migraine news.

Already, her blog entries from the conference and the first article to come out of the conference proceedings have me waiting with great anticipation for more. Here's some of what she's shared so far:When you get a chance, check out Teri's reports. If you haven't already, consider subscribing to the MyMigraineConnection email newsletter. It's a great way to keep up on what's new!

To Teri -- Thank you, as always, for looking out for all of us and sharing so much valuable information. Oh, and a belated happy birthday!

I too have had migraines, since very young age. I used to get aura, but had no idea what it was. Two of my three children have inherited migraines, though none get aura. I occasionally have posts on my blog related to migraine.

dear abi
have you tried ergot tartarate tablets .

Hi, Dino,

Yes, I have tried ergot tartrate tabs. Unfortunately, they did little for me. These days, I have very few Migraines, and a dose of Maxalt or Zomig gets rid of them in no time.

One thing to remember though is that although treatment can greatly reduce the number of Migraines we have, there isn't a cure yet.

Thanks for sharing your blog! I love to see what other Migraineurs are writing.
